WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The Battleship North Carolina announced Thursday the launch of a new blog, Sea Stories.
According to battleship employees, more than 2,300 men were aboard the vessel at one point during World War II. Sea Stories allows some of those members to tell their stories to bring a better understanding of what it was like to live on a City at Sea.
"Visitors continue to tell us how much they love reading the stories of the crew members while touring the Ship,” said Heather Loftin, Promotions Director of the Battleship in a press release. “To extend their experience and to keep our sailors stories alive, the blog is essential to share their voice.”
The first blog entry, Home Away From Home, is told by Paul Wieser, Boatswain’s Mate 1/c.
